We Drink From Our Own Wells 

A Workshop for Women To Replenish and Renew 

Saturday, April 18, 9:00 - 3:00 

Offered by Mary Bea Sullivan & Angie Wright 

But sometimes we are weary and heavy-laden. Sometimes we feel that we're all alone 
and everything depends on us. Sometimes we become resentful of the work that we care 
so deeply about. Latin American activist Gustav Gutierrez says, "we drink from our own 
wells." What happens if your well goes dry? What if the water in your well becomes 
poisoned with bitterness or anger? What happens if you lose your way and no longer 
know the way to the well? How can we find our way to the well and renew ourselves, so 
that we can go back into our world and our work, carrying our loads with peace and 
gladness of heart? 

On Saturday, April 18, from 9 -3, we will together gather at the well to drink deeply.

SEC Capital Campaign Update 

The Southeast Conference has engaged Steve Havey of Havey & 
Associates to work with us as we explore the possibility of a 
Conference Capital Campaign. He has completed an extensive Needs

our September meeting. If you would like to read the assessment,

TAP Goes to Synod ... Again! 

For the second General Synod in a row, through the generosity of the Carpenter 
Foundation, the Southeast Conference will send five Theology Among the People (TAP) 
participants to General Synod 27 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This is one of the best 
ways to learn about and experience the UCC — in worship, fellowship, and governance ~ 
in one of its most diverse and covenantal expressions. 

The parameters of this opportunity are as follow: 

1. You must be an active member of a current TAP group or a graduate of TAP. 
(Preference will be given to current members and to those who have not attended 
General Synod in the past. All are encouraged to apply.) 

2. You must be able to attend the entire Synod (June 26 - 30, 2009). 

3. You must be able to provide for your own meals and amenities while at Synod. 

Register for a 2009 
GA/SC - Ala/Tenn 
Association Meeting.
